The Charity offers two sources of grants to Associate Members looking to undertake further study.
Janet Hull Memorial Fund Travel Scholarship
This fund was established in 1979/80 in memory of Janet Hull, a UCH student and staff nurse who died tragically in a road accident on her return from honeymoon, one week after her wedding. Her parents took the initiative to create a memorial fund to help UCH nurses with travel costs in pursuit of professional nursing studies.
UCLH Charity now manages the fund and the Nurses’ Charity participates in the selection of candidates.
The fund is designed to continue in perpetuity and allows for a small annual increase to offset inflation. The money available for a scholarship is £2000.
The Janet Hull Memorial Fund Travel Scholarship is open to all registered nurses and registered nursing associates who are members of the UCH London Nurses’ Charity or are employed by UCLH.

Education Fund Grants
Grants are available to all Associate Members to attend education and training courses, workshops, conferences and seminars relating to their areas of practice in hospital and in the community. The aim is to assist Associate Members with further study or research that may help with their future career and help improve patient experience.
To apply you must be an Associate Member of the Charity and we welcome applications from recently joined colleagues.
The following grants are available recognising amounts are dependent on Charity Funds:
- Conferences and study days up to a maximum of £250 to support conference or study day attendance which can also be used towards travel and accommodation.

All applications are considered by Trustees who are members of the Education Group and recommendations are put forward for ratification by the Trustees at the appropriate quarterly meeting. Not all applications are supported and advice and feedback will be given to help resubmission or future applications. Associate Members are eligible to receive a maximum of 3 separate grants.
On completion of the course or programme, the applicant may be asked to write a short article for the Charity’s magazine and be invited to speak on their project at the Charity’s annual lecture event.

This is my fifth report as Chair of UCH London Nurses’ Charity. My thanks to the trustees, members of the Benevolent Fund Committee and volunteers without whose work the charity would not continue.
Our work has been successful over 2023, we continue to award education and benevolent fund grants, we have good liaison with UCLH
It didn’t cross my mind that a lovely sunny lunch with friends we hadn’t seen for several years during the summer of 2022 would lead to proofreading the UCH London Nurses’Charity magazine, involvement with the benevolent fund committee and attending the Annual Study Day and Charity Meeting! The repercussions of a reunion with wine can be significant.
The Florence Nightingale Commemoration Service will be taking place on 16 May at St Paul’s Cathedral at 17.00.
